The blues, whites, grays, and browns of this double bird mask are a signature feature of master Mossi sculptors from Burkina Faso. This double bird would have been a ritual dancing mask representing its owner's totemic animal. The organic geometry commands the eye, directing viewers to explore the finely wrought details of this entire sculptural object.
